Centuries of inspiring craftwork

St Lawrence’s is full of activities for the whole family, taking you on a journey of historical discovery. Let your curiosity lead you to open boxes of treasures, wear a bishop’s mitre, peek around corners, try out the pulpit and summon ethereal music.

Nestled in the heart of Evesham’s historic centre, St Lawrence’s Church is part of a triptych of stunning architectural buildings, alongside the parish church of All Saints and the great perpendicular bell tower of the abbey.

The church - of Norman foundation but largely rebuilt in the 18th century - is imposing from the outside, displaying a great six-light window with elaborate tracery.

Once you step inside the true extent of detailed craftwork is revealed. Coloured light reflects throughout the chancel from the breath-taking stained glass windows that dominate the east wall. Depicting the last supper and the resurrection, they were designed by some of the most celebrated stained glass artists of the last 150 years.  

Discover the intricately patterned fan vaulted ceiling of the sixteenth-century chapel of St Clement. This beautiful space has richly panelled arches and houses a simple and elegant fifteenth-century font.
